If History Has Taught Us Anything 1960-63

This lecture introduces the overall theme of the series: the way American movies shape and reflect much of American public thinking and discourse during presidential eras. We start with how American movies made in the early sixties reflected the social and political culture of the nation, leading up to the assassination of JFK in 1963.
